Becoming Fluent in Karate

When you are fluent in a language, you can easily express yourself. You do not have to struggle with words. They come easily. Language does not get in the way of expression.

We are working to become fluent in Karate. First, we must seek fluency of motion -- the ability to move freely and to execute techniques in any required direction. We must also seek fluency of application -- the ability to apply the appropriate technique freely and effectively.

If someone attacks, we must be able to respond quickly without thinking, as if casually carrying on a conversation.

Most of us are fluent in at least one language. Are you fluent in Karate?
